Bow deer hunting opened up this weekend in Wisconsin. Here are a few photos I took of my step-brother practicing with his bow. I was mostly shooting wide open with my 50mm f1.8. This lens is my first really fast glass, so of course I’m having fun shooting super blurry backgrounds. The crazy chromatic aberration and impossibly narrow depth of field are not as fun, so I’m sure I’ll be over my shooting-wide-open phase soon. I could probably still get some nice blur in the background even after stopping down a bit. The exception in this trio is the silhouette photo, which was shot at f16 with a 1/160th shutter speed and ISO 100. I pretty much got the effect I was hoping for, even though you can clearly see I shot it through a screen door. Because of the shorter exposure, you can actually see some color in the sky in that photo. The sky is pretty much blown out in the others, but I kind of like it that way. I was shooting RAW, so I might have been able to recover some detail in Lightroom, but I didn’t even try.
